POND REPAIR FAQs

Pond repairs can cost anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the nature, size and complexity of the problem.

Before we begin any work on your pond, we’ll provide you with a cost estimate for your approval.

Filling out our Service Request form typically allows us to give you a ballpark estimate before visiting your home. We are committed to providing our expertise, and we will present you with all of the available options and let you decide what works best for you. 

If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur! “Bandaging” a pond problem can often cost more than 50 percent more than doing a proper rebuild or renovation.

Pond water turns green when microscopic single-cell algae take over. These algae thrive on nitrites, a byproduct of ammonia and debris breaking down in the water.

Our main defense against green water at Splash is Beneficial Bacteria. These bacteria eat the excess nitrites in the pond, starving the algae and keeping the water crystal-clear – without algaecide or other harsh chemicals.

Lots of pond owners find they can solve green water problems without the help of our service team by simply adding weekly doses of Beneficial Bacteria to the pond, or by installing an Automatic Dosing System. (We carry these products at our online shop and at our York, PA retail store.)

If bacteria alone doesn’t do the job, our team can help you find the right solution for your pond and your situation. Common fixes include upgrading the pond’s skimming and/or biological filtration, keeping up with regular maintenance, or making changes to the overall design of the pond.

Fixing pond leaks starts with a good diagnosis of the problem.

Lots of the water loss pond owners experience often results not from damaged liner but rather evaporation, debris build-up in the stream or a pushed-down piece of liner around the pond edge.

If your pond continues to lose water after ruling out these potential causes, we’ll ask you to perform “the 24-hour test” to pinpoint the location of the leak. This test involves unplugging the pump for 24 hours and letting the water level drop. Wherever the water stops is where we’ll likely find the cause of the problem.

After pinpointing the location of the leak, our team will either repair the pond liner or replace it with a new piece.
